I would like to comment on the anti-American semitism and this crap that's going on, with everybody wanting to sue. Good Christians don't do that. We should want to do better for each other. My relatives work for a place where they have to be careful what they say around certain people. If people are unhappy in America, let them go back to the countries they came from. I don't want to sound mean or anything, but I love America and was born here. I'm tired of it being ripped up and torn up with all this political crap in a referendum so the politicians can be elected. Now they have to have some kind of catch phrase or something like that and it's ballooning into something that is immoral and self-righteous. It's terrible. I thank the Lord for giving some of us enough sense to stay in church and be good to people.
I read the article about what Rick Walter plans to do. Good luck! All his ideas and things that he has done, I'm 101 percent for him. Good luck Rick Walters. I hope that now everything will be run right.
In response to "Must we pay the cost for irresponsibility?" in Mike's column, we're doing it. We're paying for all these people who have seven kids, druggies and ACLU, I don't know what their problem is. If they had to pay for it personally, they wouldn't allow it. It's crazy. In the last couple of weeks, I'm glad my tax money is working because I saw all these mothers with babies but have no husbands. First time, OK. But the second and third time, it's their problem. I'm tired of babysitting these welfare people. Some of them can't help it; they deserve welfare. But these people who just sit on their butts and expect the taxpayer to cover them, I'm tired of it. I'm tired of ACLU babysitting these clowns. They need to get off their butt, quit having babies and do what's right. Start the new year off right. Get married, have kids and have somebody to support your lazy butt.
I am calling about the article that was published about Social Security. Social Security could be broke in seven years because it is doing everything it wasn't voted in for. I'm an old man and I know it was voted in in 1937. When it was voted in, it was voted in for old folks only to help them retire, not to give them before retirement, but to help them retire on. But it's being used now to pay these deadbeats who lay on their butts and not do anything, claims they're unable to work. I know people who are drawing it. They are not nearly half as old as I am but they're on Social Security disability. Social Security disability was not funded in that to start with.
I have a question. Why do you keep wasting a quarter of a page with this nonsense written by Larry Elder? Study it sometime. Who do you think really reads that?
Sorry, caller. We have several subscribers with a wide range of interests.
